Taylor Lautner, who went to school in Valencia, CA, revealed to BOP! that he was teased in high school by his friends on the football team because it took him too long to get ready:
‘I would always get teased for dressing up too much for certain occasions or just for going to school! I’d play football and my friends would show up in shorts and T-shirts, but I’d be in jeans and a button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up. Now I like to be cool and comfortable but have little edge!
I go through phases where I’ll wear jeans and a white V-neck, but the next day I’ll get dressed up and wear a button-down shirt with a jacket.’ On being manly: ‘Football is my indulgence.
I always need to have a football in my hand! Whenever I’m on set, I’m holding a ball, and when I get a break from shooting, I throw it around.’ On a girlfriend: ‘You have to be able to be a sports guy, but then also take your girl out and buy her clothes and jewelry.’
